Voice

There’s never any certainty; we’re always left unsure

But you might be tomorrow, so I’m opening the door.

The now that we are sharing feels so perfect at this time

And happy ever after would be reason for my rhyme.

But if we aren’t the everything and you decide to quit

I wanted you to know how much I’ve relished every bit.

You’ve taught me many things and I would hope you’ve learned from me

For when I said I love you I was saying you are free.

So if you stay forever I will know it was a choice

And if you say you love me back I’ll trust the words you voice

Being

In being only his I am myself

Not sharing makes this specialty unique

I saw a man and stepped down from shelf

He answers all the questions that I seek

In being only him he is divine

Simplicity and strength within his smile

Imperfect yet we fit when we combine

I want this to continue for a while

In being only what we’re born to be

We bring such happiness upon our heads

And others disapprove or disagree

But why are they concerned about our beds

In being only human we’re the same

And love is not a source of guilt and shame

Still

The constant voices stopped: Internal nagging silenced in those arms

That teach me such a lot: As stress recedes and I am left becalmed

Abandon never will: Beside me stay and hold me in the night

I love you being still: Yet strong enough to make the wrong turn right

My lover turns I see: Within those eyes are held both hope and dread

In whispered words to me: The pillow frank with nothing left unsaid

So finally I’ve found: Another soul was floating on the sea

But we will not be drowned: For still we are and still will always be

Sea and Sky

We’re sitting in the safety of the dark

And by my side he tells about his life

His smile illuminates each sad remark

He’s positive in spite of all the strife

Together in the park we’re on a date

We sit almost too close and talk of much

And all his words within me resonate

I can’t believe how deeply he can touch

He smiles again but this is just for me

And in return I look into his eyes

If his are like a deep unending sea

Then mine are bluer than the summer skies

On far horizons meet the sea and sky

And no one feels their touch but he and I

Painted

Alone in pearly grey so Garbo chic

Yet you anticipate my every thought

Insidious how you into me seep

But in your foolish games I won’t be caught

Without a word my star that shines ahead

How black and white has cast you in the shade

Your garish technicolour hues are spread

But man or mouse your plans are not well laid

And you will be the people’s choice no doubt

So populist but not what I prefer

You’re zooming in while I have faded out

So many things you are but not demure

Not jaded my depart from tinsel town

The queen is dead all hail the painted clown

Life is Done

Make the change you want to see

Be the best that you can be

Live for now and worry less

Tidy up don’t leave a mess

Think of others you can aid

Make sure debts are fully paid

Study hard as through you go

Learning helps us all to grow

Smile more often have a laugh

Light some candles for your bath

Share with others frequently

Give your love to all you see

Count your blessings one by one

Then leave in peace when life is done
